I have an enumerate in which the items are paragraphs (sometimes more then 1 per item) and the paragraphs are indented after the label. How can I change the behaviour so that from the second line of the item, it should start with normal margin (below the label)?

I am using book class.

You can change the \itemindent length to make it equal to \labelwidth+\labelsep, and perhaps also change the \leftamrgin. The enumitem package allows you to do those modifications easily. A little example:

\usepackage{lipsum}% just to generate some text


  \item \lipsum[1-2]
  \item \lipsum[1]
